Monday evenings we sit one thirty-five minute period of zen meditation (zazen) and then conduct a brief service in the Soto Zen style which includes the chanting of traditional Zen texts. Tonight’s Dharma Talk will feature a discussion with Hogetsu and visiting senior Zen priests Laurie Senauke and Taiyo Lipscomb about their experience of Zen practice in the monastery and in the practice realm of everyday life.
